Ninja Turtles: Megan Fox Cast as April O'Neil

by Russ Burlingame

Megan FoxIn spite of a high-profile break with the Transformers franchise and a media storm that followed alleging that she and filmmaker Michael Bay couldn't get along, Megan Fox is back in Bay's fold, starring as (probably) April O'Neil in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reimagining, Ninja Turtles.

Now referring to the film as "TMNT," Bay just released a brief statement that simply read, "TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!"

April O'Neil is starting to make the rounds, most likely on the grounds that she's the female lead in all of the source material. It's unlikely Bay will add another without removing April first.

That's awful friendly, considering that not long ago, Fox compared Bay to Hitler on the set of the Transformers films and called him “a nightmare to work for.”
